OMG, I just committed infanticide. This tightly wound, super tannic Burgundy is no where near ready to emerge from the cellar. Such a shame that I basically wasted it, oh well- I’ve got more.
Very muted on the nose, the cherry comes forth on the palate but is way overshadowed by the tannins. Smooth as they are, they are still extremely persistent. I am getting a full minute of finish, or is it residual tannic paste covering my gums? I can see the potential here, this wine is gonna be huge when it grows up. I’m guessing a potential 5 stars and 92 rating if it all melds together. Cellar at least until 2016 and drink for another 10 years. I can’t wait to see how the Burgundy “funk” is going to evolve on this wine.
